Atlas Copco has adapted its proven radio remote control (RRC) systems to build into the ROC D3-01 RRC and the ROC D3-03 RRC rock drilling rigs. Rod handling on the ROC D3-01 RRC 01 manages up to five 12-foot rods. The compressor can deliver up to 200 cubic feet per minute of free air. The ROC D3-03 RRC has a long folding boom with an optional rod rack for manual rod adding and an optional rod-adding system to enable the addition of a single extension rod. The 03’s compressor can push 170 cubic feet per minute of free air. Both new ROC D3 RRC models are powered by a 156-horsepower Cummins diesel and offer two rock drill options: the 16-horsepower COP 1240 and the 21-horsepower COP 1640.
